The Cribs – “Leather Jacket Love Song”

In our recent interview with Johnny Marr, the British guitar legend discussed his hired-gun relationship with numerous bands, including his time with post-Britpop rockers the Cribs, with whom he released one album, 2009’s fantastic Ignore The Ignorant, before taking off to work on solo material. Among his unreleased work with the Cribs, though, is “Leather Jacket Love Song,” which was recorded in 2010 but never saw the light of day. Till now. The song will be included on the Cribs’ forthcoming singles collection, Payola (which the band is inexplicably referring to as “the new album”) along with other previously unreleased material, but you can (and should) check it out here.

Payola is out 2/25 via Wichita.
